I can't access the internal RH gitlab, but assuming these are the user-
facing RHEL docs, maybe "enterprise-docs" ? I'd definitely recommend
*not* using "modular-docs", that will definitely be confusing, and
"linux" is probably too generic in this context.

I don't suppose we could rig this up to be upstream first from the
beginning and make the centos-stream repo the source of truth here?
